A commuter suffers a heart attack as he is boarding a train in Grand Central Station

 in New York City, on his way to his home in Connecticut. [RF]
*NOTE: Based on a factual article by Robert Wallace in LIFE Magazine.


TRIVIA: Robert Montgomery scored with a taut production of

Robert Wallace's The Long Way Home, starring John Beal as a Connecticut

commuter stricken with a heart attack as his train pulls out of Grand Central Terminal.

What gripped the viewer, as it did the readers of the original LIFE story, was

Real's it-could-happen-to-you helplessness at the hands of strangers: the

well-intentioned conductor who let him off the train at a deserted station

where he faced a seemingly endless climb to reach the street, a calloused cop

who thought that Beal was drunk, not sick, and finally the cold ministrations

of the hospital staff. But Beal's own remarkable performance told most of the story:

his tautened body and hanging jaw gave an eerie impression of the tempests

raging inside his rib cage, and his wildly questing eyes had all the shocked

horror of a man who has looked into eternity.
